Digital IC Design Principal Engineer (Edinburgh)

Job Overview:

Do you enjoy working in a creative fast-growing entrepreneurial environment? With indie you´ll never walk alone! We place high value on our teams and pursue excellence for our employees and customers!

Indie Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company specializing in the design of innovative mixed-signal System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions for automotive applications.

Our design team develops custom and standard SoC solutions for automotive applications which integrate advanced digital ICs (Arm®Cortex® MCUs and/or DSP) with mixed-signal devices into a single System-in-Package (SiP). The mixed signal can include power management, RF, high voltage as well as high speed convertors allowing us to provide complete solutions to our international customer base.

You will join a small team of highly competent engineers that are creating brand new designs in the field of wireless and USB power delivery, sensing systems and connectivity within the car. You will be responsible for managing and executing all activities associated with design, integration, verification, and maintenance of digital IPs integrated in IC used in embedded microcontroller-based system solutions.


The IC design responsibilities will include building digital components based on customer application specific requirements or IP standards and support the team to complete the design including top level integration, physical design support (constraints and gate level verification).

Key Responsibilities:


  • Work with Marketing and System teams to define IP specification.

  • Write RTL to implement digital IP based on a design specification.

  • Write implementation and SOC integration plan of the digital IP.

  • Develop block level test bench, test cases to check basic functionality of the design.

  • Run RTL and gate level functional verification, debug failures, manage bug tracking, and analyze and close coverage.

  • Work with FW engineer for the integration of the digital IP functionality at the system level in the application.

  • Support validation, test and application engineering teams in the debug of the digital IP on the silicon.

  • Report progress to the team leader on a regular basis.

Main Requirements:

With us, you must love being part of an organization where everyone makes a difference and contributes to the company's success. Creativity, Ownership and Excellence are what we value.

These are the skills and know how an ideal candidate would bring. We understand that nobody is perfect! After all, your new job should challenge you and you should have the possibilities to grow.

  • MS degree in Electrical Engineering with 10+ years of experience designing custom ICs.

  • Develop RTL (Verilog) and detailed documentation.

  • Support synthesis, STA, and logic equivalency checks.

  • RTL & gate level simulations.

  • Demonstrate knowledge of designing digital blocks using Verilog code.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of digital circuit simulation tools and front-end environments, particularly Cadence based.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of lab equipment tools such a logic analyzer.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of revision control systems.

  • Programming in Ruby, Python, Perl languages.

  • Excellent communication skills.
